I'd like the ability to customize links without editing the header ie when creating a link the ability to change underline hover clour etc etc for each individual link.

You can.:) Checkout the buttonize feature in VSD.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Here's my S-Drive site with
examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

I like the standard setting for new pages but I would like all the options to be checkable. This way you could apply a global change with one click. The one that really causes the most probems is the page length. If you have different page lengths you have to make sure you set this to your longest page then go back and shorten the other ones.:)

Would like a feature added to VSD. When creating links with the link properties window, could you add a option to make the link a "nofollow" link?

I've been playing around with some other website building software recently as VSD was giving me a few problems with uploading.

One thing I found useful that's not in VSD is the ability to "lock" text, images and flash items so that they cannot be accidentally moved.

Having to "unlock" any item to move or alter it prevents you accidentally deleting it!.

I feel that this would be a good adition.

Hi
My one 'gripe', and from reading the 20-odd pages, I can't see that anyone else has raised it, would be that in the older version of VSD, when you copied and pasted items from one page, it 'pasted in place' on the next.
For example, if I change the menu or footer on one page and wanted it to duplicate across all others, I would simply copy and paste, but with the new version of VSD, it pastes it wherever it fancies and I end up aligning by creating coloured boxes (since when one moves the guides, this doesn't duplicate across all pages).
thanks

Terri, VSD 7.0 should paste copied elements to the same location on any page but the one the copied element came from. If you copy then paste to the same page it will paste the element 10 pix down and 10 pix right. If your VSD is not doing this I would open a support ticket.:)

Option for "fixed" backgrounds in the "background fill properties" section.

Text editing is a little shaky.

First of all when you edit a piece of text, there is no "undo"
Second, why can't we put more than one space between words/sentences. I know technically one space is correct, but sometimes I want extra spaces for emphasis.
Third, I notice in Maxthon & IE, the fonts change size a bit and sometimes things like headings wrap into the text box below it. The only cure is to change it to Advanced Text (which publishes it as an image) or drop a font size.
Fourth Could we have a selectable font size? There is a big jump in the preselected sizes

FWIW: While the program doesn't produce a "mobile device" site, once I get the text issues worked around, it looks good on my DroidX, although you still have to zoom.

Oh, and speaking about zoom, a zoom or magnifier would help these poor tired eyes too +
